Team Hopkins – Winning for Did
This Fundraising Group has been set up by the family of David Hopkins (aka Did) in his memory. Did was diagnosed with a glioblastoma (GBM) in September 2020 after two weeks of symptoms which included a flicker in his eye and a dull feeling in his head.
Did underwent the standard NHS treatment of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, but also through crowdfunding accessed pioneering treatment in Germany. Sadly nothing could save him and Did passed away 14 months later on 6 November 2021.
His wife Nicki had already become an active campaigner for greater investment into research, engaging support from her local MP Holly Mumby-Croft. Team Hopkins, including Did’s daughter Lydia who is an ambassador, intends to continue to campaign and raise awareness and funds to find a cure.
